Board of Regents Bill Advances

This week, the State Senate Agriculture and Higher Education Committee passed Senate Bill 223, which would require the Board of Regents to have at least one representative from each of seven geographical areas in the state. Northwest Wisconsin would comprise one of these geographical areas. Currently, the Board of Regents has a heavy concentration of members from the Madison and Milwaukee areas.
